Sensodyne® has compensated me in connection with statements made in this post.
A few weeks ago, I was hysterically laughing with my 7-year-old daughter over our own renditions of a pop song when she squealed out, “Mom your teeth are so yellow!” My hysteria then turned to a bit of shame, and a moment of, “Ok! It is time to do something about my yellowing teeth.” I have been a long-term coffee drinker that has reaped havoc on what were – pretty white teeth. Well, considering I say, “Brush your teeth” about 15 times a day to all three of my children, I figure I better walk the walk, and talk the talk.
Having less than white teeth (or whatever my natural shade is) makes me feel older than I am. My smile and nice teeth are one of my greatest assets in my job as a keynote speaker and thought leader, and I really do think not having white teeth and a winning smiles impacts my credibility and people’s willingness to take in what I say. Having whiter teeth and a welcoming smile is definitely important in my work where I do a lot of presentations and speaking, but more importantly, I want to be able to giggle with my daughter forever, and have her say, “Mom, your teeth look amazing” – even when I am 80 . I want to maintain the “confident and beautiful” me, and without a doubt, one’s teeth says so much about what a person thinks of themselves. I always said that you have to invest in a good haircut and beautiful teeth.
Subsequently, I prioritize my GSD (get stuff done!) list getting my teeth back to what they once were – without forgoing my love of coffee, so I document on a Post-it, “GSD: Get your teeth back to your natural white!” and adhere it to my bathroom mirror
I headed down to my local drug store and canvassed the toothpaste aisle until I came to the whiteners. It was a little daunting to make the leap as I had not used a whitener before. After reading up on several options, I decided to try Sensodyne® True White®. In part, because you get bang for your buck in that it addresses tooth sensitivity as well, which I also suffer from. For the next few weeks I followed the directions and brushed twice and day and found that my teeth actually whitened.
Sensodyne® True White® provide gentle stain removal and active stain prevention that works. The key is that you have to use the toothpaste two times daily and be diligent and patient. I have to say that I do feel more confident with my whiter teeth, but brushing it with Sensodyne® has to be kept up.
It is amazing the effect of white teeth and how much more beautiful, confident, and dare I say, glowing, I feel. Here’s to GSD!
